Nakibombo Phiona

My name is Nakibombo Phiona aged 24 years. Am number one of four children raised by a single mother due to the death of our father. I joined PPI in 2018 while in senior three at Kira secondary school when a team from Project princess came for a talk session about self- esteem at our school. I was among the girls who were touched by the session and we were requested to join them at the center for skills development. My goal was to stay in school and become an electrical engineer and therefore we were told to write personal stories about ourselves and family. A team from Project princess made a visit at my home in kiwologoma and found out that my story was true, they helped me get a sponsor who paid my school fees from senior three up to senior six. I started coming at their center for skills development from where we learnt so many skills like hair dressing, facial makeup among others but I decided to put more emphasis on making liquid soap which I now do as business to feed my family and get up keep. I now attend a technical college in Matugga pursing a diploma in electrical installation and engineering. I would like to thank my sponsor, Madam Fiona and the project at large for an opportunity to empower girls more so like me to achieve their dreams.
